One-Pot Yummyness

I don't really know what to call this. I used a fried rice method, but did not use your typically Asian ingredients. So do I still call it fried rice? I think I will. Maybe, Shrimp and Andouille Fried Rice. Well, whatever you call it, it was made in one pot and it was goodness.

Shrimp and Andouille Fried Rice
Shrimp, thawed
Andouille sausage, sliced on bias
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. sesame oil
1 onion, chopped
Ground red pepper
Salt and pepper
2 eggs
4 c. leftover cooked rice

Whisk eggs well. Pour small amount of egg in small skillet. Move skillet around to coat with egg. Let cook until cooked through, set egg aside and repeat process until all of the egg is cooked. Roll eggs up and thinly slice. Set aside.
Coat large skillet with olive oil and sesame oil. Saute onion with ground red pepper, salt and pepper for 4-5 minutes, until tender. Add sausage and let cook for 3-4 minutes. Season shrimp with ground red pepper, salt and pepper. Add shrimp to skillet and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Add rice, mix well and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Mix in egg. Top with cilantro.
